Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences to be Well-Represented at ISC19

June 10, 2019

Numerous Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences staff will be participating in the ISC19 conference, June 16-20 in Frankfurt, Germany.

First held in 1986, ISC High Performance is the oldest conference and networking event for the high performance computing (HPC) community. It offers a five-day technical program focusing on HPC technological development and its application in scientific fields and commercial environments.

On Monday, June 17, Berkeley Lab Deputy Director Horst Simon and Erich Strohmaier, who founded the TOP500, will present the TOP500 list. The TOP500 project, started in 1993, ranks and details the 500 most powerful non-distributed computer systems in the world and publishes an updated list of the supercomputers twice a year.

On Tuesday, June 18, John Shalf – who leads the Computational Research Division’s Computer Science Department – will give a keynote address on what the future holds for HPC following the slowdown and eventual demise of Moore’s Law.

Here is a list of other presentations, panels, and events throughout the week involving Berkeley Lab staff:

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

The Computing Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory(Berkeley Lab) provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials, and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world, and our universe. ESnet, the Energy Sciences Network, provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at 40 DOE research sites to each other and to experimental facilities and supercomputing centers around the country. The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) powers the discoveries of 7,000-plus scientists at national laboratories and universities. NERSC and ESnet are both Department of Energy Office of Science National User Facilities. The Computational Research Division (CRD) conducts research and development in mathematical modeling and simulation, algorithm design, data storage, management and analysis, computer system architecture and high-performance software implementation.

Berkeley Lab addresses the world's most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab's scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the DOE’s Office of Science. The DOE Office of Science is the United States' single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
